I'm trying to summarize the frequency domain information of an electrical signal as a feature engineering step for a machine learning algorithm. My hypothesis is that an anomaly will appear in the power signal as harmonics and spikes that can be detected in the frequency domain.
I've used MFCC in the past for audio features, but since this signal belongs to a different domain I think that Mel Scale would not be a good choice for this task.
Are there any alternatives to MFCCs on different scales? I guess even a linear scale would be better as a naive first approach.
Or perhaps there are other transformations/methods better suited to summarize the frequency content of my signal.
